Coach Captain Bearman, one of the Coach Captain Monsters released, is also a mighty Monster, at least in terms of stats. Level 8, a Fire-type, Beast-Warrior, with 2600 attack and 2700 defense. 2600 attack isn't weak, but I prefer my Level 8 Monsters to have at least 2800 attack. This guy aids in XYZ Summoning, namely for Fire/Warriors BUT that's just himself. You can Normal Summon him without Tributing, and his attack then becomes 1300 (but his defense stays 2700) assuming he survives long enough to switch position or is used to XYZ Summon. However, he does also make all Level 4 Beast-Warrior Monster you control become Level 8 until the End Phase. So even if you don't use him, you should be able to get some powerhouse out via that effect.

Today we are going to be looking at a card from a new archetype called “Coach”. Coach is centered on Fire/Beast-Warrior monsters that were used by Devon Knox in the Zexal anime. The object of this archetype is to Xyz summon Coach King Giantrainer. In order to summon Giantrainer, you will need to have three level 8 Fire/Beast-Warrior monsters on the field. That is where Coach Captain Bearman comes in.

There are currently two deck types that play Fire/Beast-Warrior monsters, Brotherhood of the Fire Fist and Fire Kings. By combining Coach Captain Bearman and its young pup, Coach Soldier Wolfbark, with one or both of the above deck types, we can special summon Coach King Giantrainer and two Fire/Beast-Warrior monsters in one turn.

In a Fire King deck, you can use Trade-In with Coach Captain Bearman, Fire King High Avatar Garunix, Pyrorex the Elemental Lord, and Sacred Phoenix of Nephthys to draw two cards and then use Call of the Haunted or Circle of the Fire Kings to resurrect them. So all we have to do is play Onslaught of the Fire Kings to get one of your monster pieces to the field, and then use Trade-In on Bearman if it is in your hand and not in the grave already. Then use your normal summon on Coach Soldier Wolfbark to bring Fire King Avatar Yaksha or Barong to the field. Then use Bearman’s effect to change them all to level 8 monsters to summon Giantrainer. You can also use Fire Formation – Tenki and Tensu to help get the monsters you need to the field.

In a Brotherhood of the Fire Fist deck, we can use Fire Formation – Tensu to normal summon Coach Captain Bearman and Wolfbark, then use Wolfbark’s effect to summon Dragon, Boar, Bear, or Gorilla from the graveyard. We could also use Boar to get Dragon from the deck, and then use Dragon to get Boar back from the grave and then normal summon Bearman. We could also use Onslaught of the Fire Kings and Fire Formation – Tensu to get our three monsters to the field.

Coach Captain Bearman could also be used in a Skill Drain deck with Forbidden Chalice for a normal summoned 2600 attack monster. By the way, Bearman has an amazing 2700 in defense as well. Bearman is not limited to summoning Coach King Giantrainer. You can special summon a level 8 monster and normal summon Bearman to Xyz summon a rank 8 monster. Coach Captain Bearman is not a game breaking card by any means, but it can be fun to play.
